Though the weather doesn’t feel like it, the official start of spring is in less than a week, and Easter isn’t too far off either! Tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths are coming up fast, blue, pink, purple, and white Hydrangeas are gaining color, and primroses, violas, and more are in full bloom. Plus, bring home some luck with Green or Purple Shamrocks this St. Patrick’s Day.
If you need a cure for your spring fever, the Glass House and greenhouses are always toasty warm no matter the weather. Pick up some seeds for early indoor sowing or check out tons of new spring decor ideas with more arriving all the time!
Though we’re likely to have some winter weather yet to come, hints of spring are beginning to appear, especially in the greenhouse. From perennials to annuals to herbs and Easter flowers, growing seedlings are beginning to fill every available surface.
March is an ideal time to start garden prep and planning for this coming spring. Think about cutting back ornamental grasses, cleaning up perennial beds, preparing garden soil for veggies and herbs, and pruning and fertilizing certain shrubs and trees. If you’re stuck on what to do and when, let us know! It’s also a great time to start sowing indoor seeds.
Easter is only a month away! Easter flower orders should be made by no later than March 19th. Our bulb plants such as daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths will be coming out of the cooler in the next few weeks, and our Florist Hydrangeas are beginning to color up.
Though winter seems to be dragging on forever, it feels like spring here in the greenhouse. Quality Gardens is open all winter long with many houseplants, tropicals, and succulents available to help tide any plant lover over until spring.
Gardening season will be here again before you know it, so now’s a good time to think about spring and summer plans. Our 2018 seeds from Botanical Interests are here, and our greenhouses are starting to fill up with plants that will be fully-grown for Easter and spring. New houseplants & tropicals have arrived, including air plants, succulents, and beautiful foliage plants.
We’re getting ready to host a wedding next week so please excuse the chaos until then! Don’t worry, we’re still open for business but will close at 2PM on Saturday, February 24th and resume normal business hours the following day. Stop by on Friday the 23rd to see how our greenhouses look transformed into a wedding venue!
